Short Stories: Length Not My Strength

I like complicated stories; plots and characters that have depth. Sure, there are people who can write short stories of less than a thousand words that have depth, but I can’t write those. Nor do I want to.

For I Have Sinned came in at 7700 words on this last edit. That takes it out of Short Story Land. I’ve never considered marketing it as a novellette/novella, but I may have to. I’ll decide after this next edit pass. I’ll see if there’s anything that is unneccessary to the story and cut that. I’ve never had to cut before. Wish me luck.

Current Projects
The Perranti Deception, science fiction short story (first draft)
Shadow of Blood, fantasy novel (first draft)
